Noortevahetus iidse Pompeii linna lähedal, Napolis: “Creative Handmade: From Passion to Entrepreneurship”

Asukoht: Napoli, Itaalia

Noortegruppide juhtide ettevalmistav kohtumine: 15.06.2019 – 17.06.2019

Noortevahetuse toimumise aeg: 20.07.2019 – 30.07.2019

Saatvaks organisatsiooniks on Avatud Ühiskond MTÜ. Koolituse eesmärk on tuua kokku noored huvilised vanuses 18-25, et arutleda teemal kuidas käsitööna valmistatud toodetega alustada ettevõtlusegaProjekti esmane eesmärk on tagada noortele osalejatele kompetentsid, mis aitavad realiseerida osalejatel mõtteid kuidas neil oleks võimalik ise valmistada tooteid mida müüa ja seeläbi luua noortele tulevikuks tugevam konkurentsieelis teiste ettevõtjate ees. Töötube viib läbi Vesuuvi instituut, mis tegeleb arheoloogiliste uuringute korraldamisega Pompei linna piirkonnas. Piirkonna eripärast lähtudes suunatakse erilist fookust käsitööna valmistatud saviarhitektuurile. Projekti vältel alkoholi tarvitamine ei ole lubatud. Osalejatel on võimalik külastada nii Vesuuvi vulkaani ja tutvuda iidse Pompeii linnaga. 

Rahvusvaheline noortevahetus on erinevatest Euroopa riikidest pärit noortegruppide omavaheline koostööprojekt, mis on välja töötatud ja ellu viidud noorte poolt ning kus tegeletakse noorte jaoks oluliste teemadega. Projekt võib kesta 5-21 päeva. Noortevahetus on hea võimalus õppida tundma teisi kultuure ja noori teistest riikidest ning tegeleda just nende teemadega, mis on noorte jaoks olulised. Noortevahetuses saavad osaleda noored vanuses 13–30 eluaastat, oluline pole noore perekonnaseis, haridustase, rahvus ega keeleoskus. Noortevahetuses osalemiseks on tähtsaim noore soov kogeda ja õppida midagi uut. Saatvaks organisatsiooniks on Avatud Ühiskond MTÜ.

Projekti töökeel on inglise keel ning sellest lähtuvalt on projektiga seonduv informatsioon ning registreerimine lisatud vastavalt. Korduma kippuvate küsimustega on võimalik tutvuda siin. Kõikide küsimustega võib meie poole pöörduda eesti keeles: info@uhiskond.ee

Projekti rahastatakse Euroopa Liidu struuktuurfondi Erasmus+ programmi vahenditest.

General information and description of the project

The Youth Exchange  “Creative Handmade: From Passion to Entrepreneurship” is organized by cultural association “La Fucina dei Saperi” in Naples, Italy, during the period of 20.07.2019 – 30.07.2019, including 30 participants and five members (four participants + group leader) from 5 countries.

The youth exchange takes place between 20 of July (arrival day) and 30 July (departure day) 2018 in Naples, Italy. Through manual workshops the participants will be able to approach the creation of handmade objects, exploring their market potential. These creations allow us to create a link with the territories where they were conceived, in our case the focus will be on the handling of clay to create typical artefacts and the creation of ancient fragrances with the ingredients of the Sorrento peninsula.

The youth exchange will bring together 30 young people aged 18-25 from 6 countries (United Kingdom, France, Estonia, Portugal and Czech Republic) for 10 days. The competencies we intend to acquire participants in this mobility are not directly related to a particular field, being multidisciplinary. The methods used are based on non-formal education and will make the transition from the information received to the transmitted information, with emphasis on the process of learning and awareness of the acquired competencies.

Aims and goals of the project

The Handmade has all the requirements to help young people, N.E.E.T. or unoccupied. The project aims to provide curiosity towards the manual arts, giving concrete ideas to transform the passion towards these in the work of an entrepreneurial nature. Manual creations infuse self-esteem and confidence towards one’s own abilities, encouraging participants to support the need to undertake autonomous actions.

Through the discovery of the manual arts, we can discover the peculiarities of all the countries involved, moving the teachings acquired during the activities towards them and impacting significantly on the partner associations, which they can apply, in the sensitive contexts in which they operate (the schools, young women’s communities, contexts at risk of social exclusion such as those of migrants, etc.) the good practices learned during the project and create a dense network with local communities.

The methodology will include;

  • communication-based methods (interaction, dialogue, open discussions),
  • activity based methods (sharing experience, practice and experimentation),
  • socially focused methods (partnerships, teamwork, networking),
  • self-directing methods (creativity, discovery, responsibility, action).

Participants profile

30 youngsters who are between 18-25 years old belonging to partner organizations, involved, interested and motivated to participate in the project. Participants are people who fit the criteria mentioned above, such as are N.E.E.T or otherwise unoccupied. In the selection phase, people presenting the unemployed profile will have the highest priority. In addition, in the respect of equal opportunities, gender balance will be guaranteed. Having an interest in the project’s topic is mandatory – it’s not a holiday!

  • All participants have to be over 18 years old as otherwise, they cannot participate in the project. Exceptions will be made for those who are with fewer opportunities.
  • All participants should speak and understand English.
  • Participants should be curious of discovering other cultures.
  • Participants should be interested in making follow up international projects.

The Venue: Naples (Italy)

Naples is the regional capital of Campania and the third-largest municipality in Italy after Rome and Milan. In 2017, around 967,069 people lived within the city’s administrative limits while its province-level municipality has a population of 3,115,320 residents. Its continuously built-up metropolitan area (that stretches beyond the boundaries of the Metropolitan City of Naples) is the second or third largest metropolitan area in Italy.

Near the project venue, there’s Pompeii – an ancient Roman city near modern Naples in the Campania region of Italy, in the territory of the comune of Pompei. Pompeii, along with Herculaneum and many villas in the surrounding area (e.g. at Boscoreale, Stabiae), was buried under 4 to 6 m (13 to 20 ft) of volcanic ash and pumice in the eruption of Mount Vesuvius in AD 79. Many of the inhabitants were also buried before they could escape.

Largely preserved under the ash, the excavated city offers a unique snapshot of Roman life, frozen at the moment it was buried and providing an extraordinarily detailed insight into the everyday life of its inhabitants. During excavations liquid plaster was used to fill voids in the ash that once held organic remains including wood, human and animal bodies, giving unique and often gruesome images of their last moments. The numerous graffiti carved on the walls and inside rooms provides a wealth of information regarding Vulgar Latin spoken colloquially rather than that of the classical writers.

Responsibilities

Each participant should have valid health insurance (for example European Health Card) and travel insurance during the whole participation in the project. Also, participants must have during the youth exchange the travel documents: identity card/passport.

Each national group will have the occasion to present their country, culture, customs and traditions to all participants. You can bring food, drinks, songs and other traditional things specific to your country. More information you can read from our website where the process of preparing the intercultural evening is described: http://erasmus.uhiskond.ee/kkk

Participants must prepare a presentation of the sending organization which will be presented during the workshop Networking. So bring with you material about your organization (brochures, flyers, etc.). Avatud Ühiskond MTÜ will assist you with that. For the project, each national group should prepare brief research about the project topic. Avatud Ühiskond will be able to help with that as well – we are going to have a preparatory meeting in Estonia with the whole group and the group leader has the possibility to attend the advanced preparatory meeting.

Relevant information:

The Erasmus + Programme will cover 100% of the accommodation, food and activities and will reimburse 100% of the travel costs for the participants – up to 360 euros. It is recommended to have a disposal for small expenses such as souvenirs. Take a look at our Frequently Asked Questions. Please fill in this form to apply and if you have any questions, don’t hesitate to get in touch: info@uhiskond.ee

Participants will receive a  “Youthpass” certificate which describes and validates the non-formal and informal learning experience gained during the project. Youthpass is a European recognition tool for non-formal and informal learning in youth work, developed by SALTO, initially for the Youth in Action programme. Youthpass is for projects funded by Erasmus+ youth programmes and helps the participants of those projects to record their learning and skills development, which could then be used to support job applications or applications for further courses for example.

Registration deadline:  15.02.2018
